Oberoi Philae

Experience the panorama of life along the world’s longest river

Overview

A voyage along the Nile is the centerpiece of your journey through Egypt. There are few, if any, ships that can match the elegance, ideal size, and graciousness of the Oberoi Philae. Originally built for 100 guests, it was remodeled and reconfigured to accommodate 44 in her peerless style.

 

Built in 1996, she was extensively reconfigured in 2015 with just 22 cabins and luxurious amenities, including an Oberoi spa. Windows are nearly floor to ceiling and slide open, offering a connection with the river. The topmost deck has a swimming pool that is the largest of any Nile ship and an alfresco restaurant. Downstairs, there’s a stylish enclosed restaurant serving local specialties as well as more continental options.

 

The heart of the ship is the lounge, where everyone aboard gathers each night for Recap. It’s here that Egyptologists, who have worked with Lindblad for decades, share stories of the sites, who built them and why, and fascinating modern details like how they’ve changed over the years. And it’s these sites and stories, and this time to relax between exploring places of antiquity, that make this expedition, and this ship, so special.
